Lohan sued after car accident

Los Angeles: Actor Lindsay Lohan has been sued for her involvement in a car accident last week.

The troubled actress was travelling on the Pacific Coast Highway near Los Angeles when her Porsche crashed into an 18-wheel truck June 8. The driver of the truck, James, has hired a lawyer and sued the 25-year-old actress, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

James accused that Lohan`s people tried to give him money on the spot to dismiss the case. In defence, Lohan claimed James was responsible for the crash, telling friends that the truck had cut her off.

However, she has since said the brakes were not working properly on her rented car.

"Lindsay is sticking with the `truck cut me off` story, but with a twist, she claims she slammed on the brakes, but nothing," femalefirst.co.uk quoted a source as saying.

Following the crash, Lohan was taken to hospital and after being given the all clear, she returned to work to carry on filming movie `Liz & Dick`.
